Jeannie Wilson is running for the Sebastian County treasurer/collector position in the November 6 general election against Republican incumbent Judith Miller.
Jeannie, 45, is a 2014 graduate of University of Arkansas Fort Smith, on the Dean’s List each semester, with a degree in business leadership and a concentration in information technology. Her coursework included leadership management, software development, and database management.
Wilson understands the issues faced by both small business owners and corporations. Jeannie worked as a territory representative for Arkansas Corrections Industry where she assisted government, non-profits, and education agencies for 22 counties in Northwestern Arkansas and the River Valley. Her primary focus with ACI was helping offices stay within tight budgets in procuring needed goods and supplies, at the lowest cost. Wilson worked as a brand representative for Nintendo of America working on product development, logistics, and product rollout in high profile test markets. Additionally, she understands the needs of our rural citizens after operating a small, organic, sustainable farm on family land outside Charleston Arkansas where she helped reestablish the Charleston Farmer’s Market before moving to her current home in Greenwood. Wilson is a member of Junior League of Fort Smith, a foster parent for children aging out of the foster care system with GetReal24, an active Greenwood High School band boosters volunteer, and a Westwood Elementary PTO homerun mom. Jeannie and her family are proud members of the Greenwood United Methodist Church where both her husband and her sing in the choir. Jeannie is running for the treasurer/collector position because she believes in eliminating wasteful spending, creating full transparency so citizens will know where their tax dollars are going, and eliminate the charging of unnecessary processing fees when paying taxes online. She believes in an honest day’s work for an honest day’s pay – and will be available, in office, Monday through Friday from 8 am to 5 pm. Jeannie lives with her husband, James and two children in Greenwood. Her two oldest children both attend college at UAFS and ATU and will graduate this year. She is strongly passionate about the future of our county and believes we are called to take care of the least, the lost, and the last and there’s no greater leadership than a servant’s heart.
